Counseling is probably your best bet. Often times friends and family who try to help are too close to the situation get caught up in the personal investment they have in the person, which isn't a bad thing, but it can make it hard may make it hard for him because of the personal connection he has with those trying to help him. A counselor is a professional who can have a 3rd party perspective and offer him techniques in thinking and behaving that can make him more self sufficient, and therefore, more mature. This will also require a lot of work from him. Nobody can make anybody else grow up or change. They have to want to do it and take the actions to make that happen. We hope that through counseling this young man can gain the skills to maintain a positive self image and take care of himself. We wish him and you luck!
